UAW, Ford break ground for job-training center

The United Automobile Workers and Ford Motor Company will jointly administer a unique $1 million National Development and Training Center designed to help 45 ,550 indefinitely laid-off Ford workers find jobs.

Philip Caldwell, Ford chairman; Douglas Fraser, UAW president; and the bargaining teams that negotiated a contract earlier this year attended ground-breaking ceremonies Tuesday at Henry Ford Community College, where the center will be located.

Ford will take 5 cents an hour out of the paychecks of blue-collar workers to help pay for the facility.
